COMMERCIAL DESCRIPTION
Hi.P.A. is a medium-bodied groove with a fresh and fruitful nose of tympanic temptation. It begins and ends with a big hop bite that is itself forever balanced on the brink by a steady rhythm of malt. Dry-hopped for extra quenching in the face of heat and beat, itís an ideal accompaniment to chilling out, turning inward or sailing onward through the music of the night toward the dawn of the mind. Itís the liquid way to say be here now lest you never come this way again.

Leighton (9838) - London, Greater London, ENGLAND - MAY 24, 2008
I can remember a time when I didnít like IPAs. Oh, that was many moons ago! Iíve finally come around. This brew is damn tasty. Definitely worth a try. Deep orange hue with a nice head. Good taste, nice alcohol content - what more could you want? Plus, the artwork is pretty trippy...man. It is fun to admire and those who see you holding it are likely to remark, "Whoa, cool artwork on that one!"

Lubiere (9428) - Ottawa, Ontario, CANADA - SEP 20, 2007
A hazy golden IPA with a thick creamy egg white head. Aroma is pungeant and pleasant, pinhey, and hoppy, with definite maltiness, all caramelly.In mouth, a biscuiity malt is well complemented by nice floral hops, restrained but sustained, and light grapefruit. An ideal IPA. Bought at CJs in Potsdam.

JoeMcPhee (8189) - Toronto, ON, Ontario, CANADA - APR 23, 2006
12 oz bottle. Golden colour with a thick, sticky, white head. Very fresh hoppy nose, grapefruit, light papaya and other tropical fruit. Flavour is well-balanced. Moderate bitterness, but loads of hoppy flavour, pale malt sweetness that lets the hops shine. Tropical fruit in the hops. Great balance. Clean malts and a tasty hop bill. Nothing to complain about here.
